Important Message from the IDNR: Personal Watercraft
Illinois Department of Natural Resources
If you plan on bringing any non-motorized watercraft such as a canoe, kayak, paddle boat, or sail board for use on Fish Lake please note: these watercraft are no longer required to be titled/registered in Illinois, unless the vessels have a motor or sail.
However, you are now required to purchase a ‘Water Usage Stamp’ for $6.00 per calendar year for each of the first three vessels, and $3.00 each for any additional vessels. Please note: an agent fee of $.50 will be charged per vessel.
The stamps are good for one year. They expire on December 31st each year. Your Stamp can be adhered anywhere on the interior or exterior of the vessel as long as it is visible. Fish Lake Beach is authorized to sell this stamps at Fish Lake Beach.
Go to Concessions to buy them for your boats.
